there was no integrated security testing before the launch. >> by the way, kathleen sebelius has testified there is no way a hacker could steal your social security number from this site. meanwhile, issa was denounced for his attacks on the health care law. >> house republicans shut down the entire federal government for three weeks in october. three weeks. shut down the government. they threatened to default on our national debts unless we repealed the affordable care act. now they're attempting to use the congressional oversight process to scare americans away from the website. nobody in this room, nobody in this country believes that republicans want to fix the website. for the past three years the number one priority of congressional republicans has been to bring down this law. and that goal, ladies and gentlemen, has not changed. >> congressman cummings joins us. when you sit with those people like your chairman of that committee, what do you sense is his game plan? is it cheap publicity? or is it actually into scaring so many people from participating in the program that he can help kill the success

neat to look at. >> aides to hhs secretary kathleen sebelius confirmed on wednesday that the web site won't be ready to handle small businesses' purchases of health insurance for their employees until this time next year, prompting this response from republican national committee chairman. with each passing day, it's clear how much worse obamacare is than a web site full of glitches. yet again the administration has made a wholesale change to their signature piece of legislation because of the disastrous impact it is having on americans. it's time we stop delays pieces of obamacare, he concluded, and scrap it and start over with common sense reforms. uninsured individuals who want to avoid paying that fine must purchase their health coverage by march 31. back to you in new york. >> thank you, james rosen, from d.c. >> thanks. >>> as the deadline approaches, we've seen a couple of closed door meetings taking place with democrats who are concerned certainly about their reelection and want to go find out from the administration what exact israeli going to happen. we know vice president b
ways, torte reform. the president brought in kathleen sebelius ahead of the trial association for 11 years. we need torte reform so the doctors don't have to order too many tests. the pre-existing conditions, i think, should be pooled to an assigned risk where they have to pay more, similar to what is current. i was able to get insurance when i was younger but the state required the insurance companies provide that pool. i'd also like to agree with the gentleman from pennsylvania about the federal reserve. i wonder if most americans see that it's a board of international bankers that decide our interest rates. host: reid, we have a lot of topics there. let's have the congressman respond. guest: reid, let's start with medical liability. you mentioned that. when the health care law was first being driven through congress in 2009, i remember being summoned to the white house, abdur-rahim was the chief of staff. he had -- rahm emanuel was the chief of staff. he had me and some other republicans up to chat and i raised the issue of medical liability reform in that meeting and rahm said we

kathleen sebelius is urging customers to shop healthcare.gov at off-peak hours, that would be mornings, evenings and weekends, and the idea of course is not to overwhelm that site. withering criticism of the initial rollout of healthcare.gov has intensified the pressure on the administration to get this fix right for saturday. the white house hopes it can do that, at least for the vast majority of users. >> and this website is going to get fixed. >> reporter: healthcare.gov opened for business october 1st and it's been a disastrous two months. the site crashed, unable to cope with people trying to sign up. small businesses still won't be able to use the site for another year. insurance industry insiders tell cnn some customers' personal data is getting mangled or even lost. the white house says the site will be able to handle 50,000 users at one time, but they admit there will be times after saturday when healthcare.gov does not function properly, and they're bracing for another possible huge surge in volume that could force some people into virtual waiting lines for call-backs. offici
. obviously the blame starts at the top with the president and kathleen sebelius. this looks like a systemic breakdown. looks like you just can't point at the people at the very top. there's a lot of people up and down the food chain that failed miserably on this. >> it is systemic. it goes to the heart of the democratic party argument an argument that the government can do a lot of good things really well. if we can't get this right it under mines that entire argument. >> an argument you've said very publicly, in this case you support it. >> do i. >> you want this for personal reasons, not for professional reasons, you want this to work for personal reasons and there are millions of people like that, which makes this all the more, all the more just unbelievable to people who believe that the government can do big things and do it well. >> it's not just a personal thing. i have two older daughters who have been able to take advantage of obama care. but i think any american, whether you're a small government conservative or big government liberal or like most of america you just want governm
including kathleen sebelius, the health and human services secretary was aware of some of the problems with the website earlier this year, back in march. those concerns, according to republican members of this one committee, the energy and commerce committee, they feel like they were not told the full story by kathleen sebelius based on the documents provided by a consultant, a firm that was advising the administration on the health care plan. guys, back to you. >> jim, appreciate the reporting. we want to tell you about a deadly plane crash in russia. it was caught on video which is helping to understand what happens but it's hard to watch. that spec of light is a boeing 737 passenger jet. sunday all 50 people aboard it died in the crash you just saw in kazan. american flight investigators say the recovery of the black boxes will help in the investigation. we're bringing in our specialist, richard quest, the host of "quest means business." knows a lot about the aviation business, how these investigations happen. how do we make sense of this? >> this is a difficult one not only because
that most of the bill would come out in regulations written by that arrogant and smug kathleen sebelius. there are now something like 15,000 pages of regulations. all of the hoo-ha over sandra burke and her birth control, i think we knew birth control and abortions would be covered. they prevented illegal immigrants from getting obama kaefrmt of course insurance was going to go up. you'd be required to cover things that no normal person would want to insure against so people would be thrown off their plans. as we know from the federal register, the hhs knew in 2010 and predicted about 93 million americans would be thrown off their current insurance plans, the ones they shopped for, the ones they liked, the ones they're beginning to be thrown off now. >> exactly. there was with moment -- every once in a while you see a piece of tape that reveals the truth about something. here is the president explaining how he got burned in obama care. watch this. >> having said that, given that i've been burned already with a website -- more importantly the american people have been burned by a website
a faster and youers will face fewer errors. kathleen is h sebelius has some, to shop the website during off peak times and don't be afraid to comparison shop to get the best deal. we will gather to the health policy reporter for the wall street journey, she's in washington tonight. they said it won't be perfect, do you think it will be largely problem free. >> what we're hearing some of the front-end problems have been fixed so the site looks better, the pages load faster, some of the back end problems the administration has acknowledged there are still problems. they're still tripping up the identity page. these are problems that could be exacerbated by a volume of people come together site. >> will most people be able to log onto the website and buy insurance? >> the best way to think about these problems is that they're hidden to a large number of people. but they're very real problems and hard to fix. the vast majority of people may see a better using experience on this site. what remains to be seen is whether a good number of people are still getting tripped up by the back end problem.
